100, 200 and 300 Famous Japanese Mountains

Japan’s Most Prominent Peaks

For better or worse, Kyuya Fukada’s 1964 best seller “100 Famous Japanese Mountains” (日本百名山 Nihon Hyaku-meizan) has had a profound influence on modern alpinism in Japan. It has led to a decades long hiking boom particularly amongst the middle-aged and elderly with all his 100 famous mountains highly coveted by climbers. Over the years the list has been added to with a 200 and even a 300 mountain showcase. Incredibly a small number of devotes have managed to bag all of them including the intrepid Yamaholic Grace along with the indomitable Yoki Tanaka a professional adventurer who features on NHK “Great Traverse”.

For a bit of background behind why these initial 100 mountains were included in Kyuya Fukada’s book the excellent English translation One Hundred Mountains of Japan by Martin Hood is a worthwhile read. Also check out Wes Lang’s Hyakumeizan page which has a link to each mountain. In 1984 the Fukada Club, a fan club of the late author created the 200 Famous Mountains (Nihon Nihyaku-meizan 日本二百名山) by adding 100 new mountains. Preceding this was the Japanese Alpine Club which in 1978 devised the 300 Famous Mountains (日本三百名山 Nihon Sanbyaku-meizan). Just to confuse matters the 300 list includes 101 mountains as Warusawa-dake is included in the 200 mountains but not in the 300 mountains.
